Jazz Band Hire: Promo video performances


I hired the Mississippi Swamp Dogs to perform at the Belgravia Classic Car Show. It was the first time we’d run the event, so I wanted a band who understood the brief. Not only did they understand the brief, but they exceeded everybody’s expectations. They performed all over the gardens, and also did a set in the marquee. With an event like this, flexibility is key, and nothing was too much trouble. I would have no hesitation in recommending them, and look forward to welcoming them back next year.

Jazz Band Hire

Are you having a Mardi Gras themed evening or maybe a Roaring Twenties night? Our band has performed many such a night to great success. Here is a testimonial from the RAF Midsummer Ball organiser, Flight Ltnt Chris Smyth:

Highly recommended!!  Communication was outstanding when booking and organising the sets for the evening, setup was smooth and entirely unobtrusive and the performance was simply exceptional.  The Mississippi Swamp Dogs took our 1920s Jazz Band Summer Speakeasy Ball to another level.  From charming reception music early on, to a full-on roof blowing experience into the dark hours, the Swamp Dogs truly delivered on every level.

A big thanks to Jeff and the Guys for not only packing the dance floor throughout the evening, but also taking the time to socialise with some of our hard-core jazz enthusiasts between sets.  I have been inundated with plaudits and requests for repeat performances since the evening – we will certainly be booking again and again. I certainly cannot confess to being a wordsmith but I hope it summarises our gratitude.

For whatever scenario you require lively, happy music for The Mississippi Swamp Dogs will deliver! Do you want a Great Gatsby Jazz Band ?

Remember, when you are going to hire a jazz band you need to ask yourself quite a few questions. They have a bearing on what kind of jazz band you need.

Jazz Band Hire Tips

The above questions will help define your band. Certainly the size of the band, the quality of the band and the ability of the jazz band to be flexible. There are amazing jazz bands all over London and beyond who can play specific types of jazz incredibly well. That is of no use to you if, at some point, you want the band to turn into a party band playing soul classics.

These are issues you need to take up with your band in advance. You do not want to find out on the night that your jazz group has no suitable repertoire for dancing if that is important to you.

Band Hire more Tips

My recommendation is to go and see the band play, see how they interact with their audiences, see how varied their repertoire is and see how sympathetic they are to the room they are in. Are they playing suitable songs for the gig? Are they of the right quality? Does the jazz band play at the right sound level? Are they too loud, too quiet? Are they polite to their audience?

I think all these questions are important ones when considering hiring a band. Our public dates are here, come along to one of our public gigs. We look forward to meeting you and talking to you about your event.
